Western Suburbs Weekly - - Art -

WA quick Jason Behren­dorff made his long- awaited re­turn to the bowl­ing crease for Subiaco Floreat dur­ing day one of round 13 in Premier Cricket on Satur­day.

Behren­dorff, who hasn’t played for more than two months be­cause of a frac­tured fibula, bowled 10 overs and fin­ished with 1-33 but it was Mid­landGuild­ford’s day at Li­lac Hill.

Ste­wart Wal­ters smashed the Subi bowlers to all corners of Li­lac Hill to have the Mon­key Town­ers on top.

The hosts posted 259, de­spite An­drew Holder con­tin­u­ing his fine sea­son with 5-59.

The vis­i­tors fin­ished 2-39 at the close of play, with Calum How out for 22 late in the day.

A stub­born Wil­let­ton frus­trated lad­der lead­ers Clare­mont-ned­lands in a grind­ing day at Cress­well Park.

The Dragons man­aged to put part­ner­ships to­gether without los­ing many wick­ets to post 241 from 90 overs.

Jim Al­lenby worked hard for 3-32 from 20 overs, with Dan Tur­kich con­tin­u­ing his con­sis­tent year with 3-50.

Univer­sity put in an in­spired per­for­mance to be on top against Joon­dalup at Iluka Sport Com­plex.

Bat­ting first, the Stu­dents looked in trou­ble, los­ing two wick­ets early be­fore Jay O’brien (60) and Josh Ma­son (80) put on a 148-run stand to push the vis­i­tors to­wards a strong to­tal.

A late col­lapse meant Univer­sity could only post 222. Joon­dalup fin­ished 1-14 at the close of play, with Josh Dal­limore mak­ing the break­through.
